Tommy Hawk finally caught one.

It took many chances before many games and an extra long fishing net but the Chicago Blackhawks mascot finally caught a puck from forward Patrick Kane on Thursday.

The near misses weren't for lack of trying on the big bird's part. In previous games, Tommy Hawk has tried to catch one of Kane's flips with a plastic bag, a laundry basket, a baseball glove, a rainbow with pot of gold, a popcorn bucket and even an Easter basket full of plastic eggs.

After the catch, the mascot was feeling pretty good about things.

Kane was pretty pumped too as he raised both hands over his head to celebrate the catch.
